Brown vs The Board of Education: Under Attack

This doesn’t story doesn’t seem to be getting a lot of attention, but on Monday, the Supreme Court will hear two cases (article 1, article 2) which may have an impact on everything Brown vs the Board of Education set to accomplish.  This is ground-breaking. 

What people fail to understand is this: education for our children will not be equal until financial and intellectual resources are evenly distributed regardless of social class and race.  This has not happened in our society.  School districts in wealthier communities, receive more resources then those in poorer communities.  As a result it ends up dividing based on race.  States must take active measures to ensure that every child, no matter what economic or social status they belong to, are afforded the chance to  recieve a quality education.  That is what Brown vs The Board of Education set to do.
